Through performance, video, painting, and textile, Insha Manzoor informs “self-conceptualized” identities, notions of self and experience within the visual tradition. Her installations examine the interplay of physical and metaphysical relationships, and the knotted connections between cultures and communities. She is engaged with transforming spaces that are permeable, fluid and imaginary.
She completed her MA in Visual Art from the Royal College of Arts, London, and an MFA in Visual Art (Painting) from Visva-Bharati University Santiniketan, West Bengal. Previously, she did a BFA in Fine Art Painting/Art History from the Institute of Music & Fine Arts, University of Jammu. She is the current recipient of the CWIT Long-term Award for Study Abroad by British Council India Trust. She received the Pride of Paradise, Top 12 Achievers Award by JK Bank India. She was also awarded the Young Artists of India National Scholarship, by the HRD ministry of Culture, India. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
